Support Families Who Have a Terminally Ill Child

Support Families Who Have a Terminally Ill Child


Rainbow Trust supports families of children who are terminally-ill or life-threatened. We support families from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond - whatever the outcome.

monthly donors


The pressures on a family with a seriously ill child are extreme. Siblings often feel left out and neglected as the attention of their parents, family and friends focuses on their sick brother or sister. They often believe they have done something bad to cause this imbalance and feel frightened about what is happening around them and of what the future holds. They can become angry, withdrawn and resentful and school work can be severely disrupted.


Rainbow Trust's regional Family Support Workers provide bespoke care to all family members in their own homes through diagnosis, treatment and beyond bereavement where necessary, ensuring they have someone to rely on for as long as they need it.

Long-Term Impact

Rainbow Trust provides emotional and practical support to 1,900 families per year - supporting not just the sick child but also the healthy siblings, parents, carers and grandparents.
